About This Blog...
Betty ByrdBetty Byrd and her husband, Cecil, served as missionaries in Zambia and Mozambique for over 30 years. Trained as a Bible translator, experienced as a teacher, and warm as a friend, her testimony is both sobering and inspiring. Her obedience is off the charts: Even though tribal killers took the life of her husband, she refuses to stop serving unreached people worldwide. In 2008, she quietly and humbly worked with several friends to mobilize her home church, Okolona Christian Church (Louisville, KY), to adopt a people group in South Asia. Not long afterward, the church's leadership appointed her Prayer Coordinator for the outreach. She has traveled widely, speaking and sharing her testimony and her radical commitment to prayer. She loves her family, her friends, and, most of all, her Lord.
